Revist Budget Spending Splurge to Save Jobs
“It is clear from the tenor of the Treasurer’s letter to Unions Tasmania, dated the 21st of October, that Peter Gutwein is setting up the public sector unions to fail in their quest to save jobs, and to be the scapegoats when the fallout of cuts begins to hit,” Mr Booth said.
Vale Gough Whitlam
“We pay tribute to, and celebrate the life of, Gough Whitlam. A man who physically and politically towered over the nation’s civic life,” Mr Booth said.
Don’t Chip Lonely Planet Rating
“The many Tasmanians who campaigned long and hard over decades to establish a genuine clean, green and clever brand to promote our beautiful island state nationally and internationally should be taking immense pride in this latest vindication of the Lonely Planet Guide’s rating,” Mr Booth said.

“Tasmania and potential investors needed to hear a clear and unequivocal commitment from the Premier ruling out compulsory acquisition of the Triabunna mill site in response to the formal Interim Report of the Parliamentary Committee, but instead we were provided further woodchip madness,” Mr Booth said.

Gutwein Confuses Ultimatum with Negotiations
“The Hodgman regime’s refusal to acknowledge that the reasonable and respectful thing to do is to enter into good faith negotiations with public sector unions is gobsmacking,” Mr Booth said.
Liberals Sink to New Low with Hare-Clark Attack
Tasmania’s Hare-Clark system has long been recognised as the jewel in western democracies’ crown, as it is one of the most fair and democratic across the globe. The only reason any Party would move to dismantle it is if they no longer believe in democracy and just want absolute power, Greens Leader Kim Both MP said today.
“This whining and ridiculous complaint that Hare Clark favours the Greens is utterly absurd, given the last time I looked the current Liberal majority government was voted in under the Hare-Clark system,” Mr Booth said.
